    Former Olympic Champion Maarten van der Weijden is trying to swim the 200K track of the famous Elfstedentocht (skatingtrack) to raise funds for cancerresearch.

    Last year he "failed" at 163K.

    Before Maarten became Olympic champion he suffered leukemia himself.

    He is a true hero. Goooo Maarten

    A proper hero there. Plus, he's probably seen more of the aquatic environment than I could ever dream of!
